Students will: Paint a shape. Make a script with forward and bounce tiles. Record a short sound. Save the sound and add it to the bounce tile in the script. Copy the shape, change its scale factor, and color. Use a playfield to limit the motion. Experiment with different lengths and widths for the playfield. Experiment with forward by values to control the polyrhythm. Experiment with starting location of shapes to control the polyrhythm. Experiment to control the location so all three shapes never touch simultaneously, or so they touch simultaneously every cycle. Add a title. Add a flap if additional information is needed.
